Greene said Mike Silver took him out of context Dan Leberfeld

Shonn Greene said today that Yahoo Sports’ columnist Mike Silver took his quotes out of context. Greene claims he never called for a quarterback change.

“I think the quotes were totally out of context,” Greene said about Silver’s article. “What I said is, ‘We’re 3-6 and things need to change.’ I never said anything about changing the quarterback or anything about any single person on this team. I’ve been here four years, and I’ve never once said anything about anybody on this team. First it was yesterday’s (article) and now, today, it’s with me. It’s like, ‘Come on, really?’ We just want to play football. That’s all we want to do. I had a friend text me the article and I was shocked. I knew nothing about (the article). First off, the article was supposed to be about me. It was supposed to be feature about me and where I’m at right now. How it turned into me saying this about this person and that person, I don’t know.”
